Thanks. Upgrade successfully applied. I did not realize how well the composite extensions have been integrated into kwin4.
I notice in YaST that I still have several compiz packages and libraries, probably from when I was still on SuSE 11.1 with KDE 3.5. Can I safely throw them away? I’m not planning to use gnome or some other window manager/desktop environment.
It’s more like that I want to keep my system clean and tidy and with every major upgrade, more obsolete stuff seems to be piling up, leading to needless and confusing dependency warnings.
Furthermore, with more stuff on my system, major upgrades (like a few months ago from 11.1 to 11.2) eat a lot of bandwith, which is still a small issue due to monthly quota on my internet subscription. Though, the ISP has raised the quota already a few times so it is becoming less of an issue.
